How and Where to Submit a Paper to the Refereed Track
HOW AND WHERE TO SUBMIT A PAPER TO THE REFEREED TRACKAn extended abstract of two to five pages is required for the paper selection process. Full papers are not acceptable at this stage; if you send a full paper, you must also include an extended abstract.
Include appropriate references to establish that you are familiar with related work, and, where possible, provide detailed data to establish that you have a working implementation or measurement tool.
Submissions will be judged on the quality of the written submission, and whether or not the work advances the state-of-the-art of system administration. Please consult the detailed author guidelines.
Note that LISA, like most conferences and journals, requires that papers not be submitted simultaneously to more than one conference or publication, and that submitted papers not be previously or subsequently published elsewhere for a certain period of time. Papers accompanied by non-disclosure agreement forms are not acceptable and will be returned unread. All submissions are held in the highest confidence prior to publication in the conference proceedings, both as a matter of policy and as protected by the U.S. Copyright Act of 1976.
Every accepted paper must be presented at the conference by at least one author. Authors of an accepted paper must provide a final paper for publication in the conference proceedings. One author of each accepted paper receives compilmentary technical session registration. Final papers are limited to 20 pages, including diagrams, figures and appendices. Complete instructions will be sent to authors of accepted papers.
To discuss potential submissions and for inquiries regarding the content of the conference program, contact any member of the program committee or the program chair:
